New Atlanta Stadium by 360 Architecture

The New Atlanta Stadium designed under the supervision of Senior Principal Bill Johnson of the 360 Architecture practice brings a striking landmark to the capital city of the Georgia State with an unusual retractable roof that features eight panels that rotate to open or close.

The triangulated pieces defining the design are made of glass and metal and the creators wanted a setting that would change the way you think of going to a football game so that the experience you have when in the crowd is totally different from what the television could offer, and with their daring project the 360 Architecture practice managed to win the commission in competition with designers like HKS, Populous or EwingCole.

The structure was carefully considered to fit the display screens and to increase the acoustic levels with the roof overhangs maintaining a high decibel level for the home team of The Falcons to have the field advantage.
